    Hello, A few branches are showing signs of wilting leaves at the tips. Some are just lifeless a the tip but I found a couple where all the leaves have turned brown and husked down about a foot from the tip of the branch. Flowering was fantastic, but this wilting thing is new. Any idea? Thanks in advance...vc

    Well, where is it planted in terms of sun, soil, etc.? How much or little water does it get? How long has it been there?

    This is common, fungal or bacterial. Hard prune each year right after bloom, leaving a short section of last year's new growth. Burn or put prunings in garbage.
